I've found a good conversation starter is to tell someone I don't have a TV.
My name is Rosemandle, and I love to write things that make me happy and hopefully inspire others! I am currently writing a short book called Besties, which has been great fun to write. I love tacos and pizza, and I want to either be a youtuber or a writer when I grow up.
Or maybe I' do both now! Who knows.....
Hello. I am GLD, who has an interest in humour, wit, sarcasm, science fiction, fantasy, and just about everything that is interesting enough to read, sing along to, ponder about, or laugh about.
Now, I got the minimum of 15 words, so there you go.
(I really only entered because you said that anybody who sees this challenge has to enter it, and I have yet to learn how to unsee things. Maybe one day.)
There are so many newbies now! I think I'm kinda an OG? I have been on Prose for five or six years. I actually found it because of FastWeb when I was a junior or senior in high school because I wanted to make money from writing which I have literally NEVER learned how to do. Still don't know how to do it honestly? Anywho, I'm AJ. I'm a 22-year-old American that really likes cheese and is attracted to disappointment. I'm in college in my last semester, and I am crawling to the finish line like that poor daddy's long leg that was left a septipelgic when I pulled off 7 of his legs. I promise I'm not still that evil. I'm far too tired to do anything chaotic except shake Monster cans in Giant Eagle and give squirrels political advice.
I honestly am not online much anymore just because this whole adulting shit is exhausting. But, in the event that you peruse through the literal hundreds of entries I've made, you'll see that I like to do experimental work and that I love fantasy, sci-fi, and basically anything that makes you think. My favourite post on here is actually my story "Something for Lilo" (trigger warning: abortion) so, yeah. I think it represents me a lot as a writer. nowadays I'm kinda balancing all these huge ideas like ideas of religion and philosophy and science and politics, and even though it's like a mental marathon (and I do NOT run), I know that once I get time to start writing again, it's going to really shape my writing in ways that I can't wait to see.
What else can be said? I don't like the beach or mountains, both thanks to family reunions. I'm lowkey afraid of elephants and whales because I'm small and they can pretty easily kill me. Belugas are beautiful. I study biology. My favourite colours are lavender, grey, black, rainbow, and yellow in that order, and I was yesterday years old when I found out that you can put sparkles in alcohol (and today years old when I realized that it's just glitter and you will be up at all hours of the night). What's the difference between grey and gray? Only Grammarly knows apparently.
For anyone that read this, thanks for reading and to the person that made this challenge, thanks for making it! It's always fun to reach out to new Prosers and I really love the tradition we have here of getting people to talk to each other and get to know each other.
Well, all the cool kids are doing it...
...and also, I've got some very important procrastinating to do, so hi everybody. The "R" in my name is for "Ryan," and I've been teaching high school English in the part of New York with cows for 16+ years. I joined Prose in October 2019 because I hadn't written anything for a very long time but wanted to. The community here kept me inspired and motivated so that I actually stuck with writing and worked on it for real. Through all the practice and experimentation, I improved.
The breakthrough came when I wrote a story titled "Rideshare": it was the best thing I'd written to that point, and when readers told me so, I moved from the maybe-someday phase of writing to the going-for-it phase of writing. Eighteen months later, I have a handful of small-outlet publications under my belt and 60,000 words of a novel. I'm a teacher--it's who I am and I love it--but regardless of how far my writing goes or doesn't, it no longer feels silly to think of myself as a writer. As a friend once told me, "A writer is one who writes," nothing more, nothing less, and I knew that, but Prose helped me to feel that. It's home.
(Longtime readers might remember "Rideshare," but if anyone is curious to read it, I'm happy to say the story got picked up by Sleet Magazine: https://www.sleetmagazine.com/selected/love_v13n2.html)
Cheers, everyone. Glad to be Prosing with you.
"If deep isn't your style,
then I'll push you into the ocean
and ask you if real life
(Maybe it is)."

I've been a member of Prose for more than 3 years. I write about anything and everything; fiction, poetry, long, short, people, monsters. I especially love writing in fantasy genres, horror, and sci-fi.
I really love the people that I've met through this website. Everyone is so supportive and I wish you all luck and success in your writing careers and life in general! Keep creating! :)

’Don’t always own that less is more,
But think I’ve said it best before...
I wrote a rhyme here once I’m sure
Some years ago it was (’bout four.)
Ah yes, Here it is:
Thank You (A Love Limerick)
There once was a lady in shambles
Who had no outlet for her rambles.
One day she found Prose;
A new dawn arose!
Thoughts in words now instead of in scrambles!
We meet again!
It had been so long.
What can I say? Life is a mess.
But hey, I’m alive! Isn’t that great?
College is better than I thought it would be.
I love to talk, and my friends are in pain.
But it’s okay. They’ll adjust with it.
It’s me, after all.
How bad could it be?
What could be worse?
Never mind my brain.
He hasn’t changed much,
But so haven’t I!
Is this a poem?!
Uh, I don't think so...
Ah, I missed you all so much <3
I've been here on prose for about two-three years, I still write in random capalization, still can't spell to save my life, and I have a talent to give words meaning.
I am Iamagoofball, a name that my sister made for me when I was eight, and I just never changed it. I've been here for about a year and a half. I'm always super busy, but that's how I like life. I love working with kids, volunteering, helping people, playing guitar, and, of course, writing! I write mostly fantasy, but I will change it up sometimes. My best friend is also a writer on the Prose (The one who introduced me to it actually) AnneLGrey. I want to publish a book within the next three years (But I have to finish it first). I love my family, friends, my dog, and my church.
